lump in the inside of my arm right above the crease in elbow

    
Asked by car (Female; 45 ) on Wed 30, Dec 2009 09:06pm

I have a lumb in the inside of my arm right above the crease of my elbow. I have had it for several months and is about the size of small bounce ball about a silver dollar size in diamater. It protrudes a little when I straighten my arm. It is tender when pressed on and creates numbness in my hand. What do you think? Also what type of doctor should I see?

Hi, Causes of elbow lump could be Sebaceous cyst, Bursitis, Abscess or tendonitis. Numbness may be due to nerve compression by the lump.Please consult a surgeon for complete examination, diagnosis and treatment. It may require surgical treatment if it is non- responsive to antibiotic treatment. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
